They tried to bring Ferguson to the Big Apple, and the NYPD was having none of it:
Police held off the mass of demonstrators, who were organized in protest over the lack of an indictment against the white police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teen on Ferguson, Mo.
The protesters marched south from the New York Public Library and turned right on 37th Street toward Seventh Avenue about 9:30 a.m. – but then tried to make a U-turn toward the parade route.
Police officers told the protesters they couldn’t turn around and the agitators started growing angry, leading some to knock down metal police barricades as parade-goers fled the ruckus. Seven protesters were arrested and will be charged with disorderly conduct, cops said.
I was wondering where all the rioters were during the parade this morning. I'm surprised they could only muster a hundred racist agitators. It doesn't say much for their dedication or their "professionalism".
The least they could have done is shoot down the SpongeBob balloon with a surface to air missile. I've been waiting and hoping for somebody to do that for years. It's the only thing that could make that parade the slightest bit interesting to me.
